    I have been working at Hermes Landscaping full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    This company has turned over a new leaf! They've brought on great managers who support us and understand how to run their departments. It's nice to see people getting promoted and we are all being made aware of the opportunities and career paths that are available. The people are incredible here and it's nice to see how happy my co-workers are. I'm really happy I've stuck around and get to be apart of the success and growth the company is experiencing.

    Cons

    None right now. Good stuff happening, hope it stays that way.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep promoting and training employees and celebrating both the small and large successes.

    I have been working at Hermes Landscaping full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Co-workers. And the ability to share our grief with each other. I do like hearing from them how hopeful they are about leaving and getting a better job.

    Cons

    Ownership treats you like dirt, he'll disrepect you in public, frequently, consistently - even when you're not in the room. Plan on being stuck in 1972...huge volumes of paperwork - use of current technologies? No chance. Worst decision of my life to come here. Bonuses for doing well? Forget it. Raise for taking on more? NO. Plan on getting dumped on with impossible work loads then criticized and punished for failure. Oh, and if you're on salary, plan on getting bullied into working 55+ hours per week with no incentives. You'll be made to feel guilty about spending time with your family and not working weekends.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It doesn't matter. He won't listen. Never has. He chews people up and spits really good people out. Reach out to former employees on linked in to verify.

    Oh, to HR - stop writing these positive reviews. And management is the only one who has written these good reviews so please stop encouraging false hope. Its so obvious.

    I have been working at Hermes Landscaping full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Strong co-worker bonds, varied work to do, knowing that I am valued... these all contribute to why I love working here. This is the place that I want to retire from (and I have a long way to go until retirement). The people I work with and for are like family, and that is one of the main satisfactions of working for a family owned business.

    Cons

    Landscapers work when the sun shines and plow when it snows... so there can be some long hours in season, but the hours are paid for and the work rewarded.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The people that work here are the gems of the company, keep cherishing them.

    Pros

    Hermes performs at high levels completing jobs; looks, seeding, planting trees and bushes, overall landscapes. I love being around all my co-workers and learning new skills! This company is my second family. I would do anything for them. I'm good at what I do and proud of it. I am a proud member of the Hermes Landscaping family and would highly recommend them.

    Cons

    Sometimes materials for jobs could be better organized so everyone can work more efficiently more effectively. However, sometimes jobs change at the last minute and there is no way to predict that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe rely more on the field workers who are on the job everyday and know the day in and out routine.

    Pros

    I really enjoy the camaraderie with my co-workers! I have only worked here a year and all my interactions with management have been good. Company culture is positive, everyone is very supportive of each other and help each other.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, there was a more negative group previous to the current team. The team in place however, are movers and shakers!

    Overbearing management that is too focused on the bottom dollar and not on taking care of their employees.
